Are Swim Classes Worth It? If Not, How Do You Teach a Kid to Swim?

My 4 year old doesn't know how to swim yet and I'd like him to learn this summer. I initially thought I would enroll him in swimming classes but now that I know they're $20/lesson on average, I'm starting to wonder if it's worth it. I don't know the first thing to teaching a kid how to swim though. How did your kids learn and how long did it take them? Tips on how to teach? Thanks!
